Tipperary showed its generosity with five Centra stores hosting Pink Walks this October for the Irish Cancer Society’s Action Breast Cancer.
The Tipperary Centra stores are on target to raise €5,300 for the very worthy charity cause. Over 300 people from all over the county pounded the pavements of their towns, villages and neighbourhoods demonstrating tremendous community spirit and real support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The Centra stores who got their community walking for this great cause were: Austins Centra Cloughjordan, Hourihanes Centra Killenaule, Kennys Centra Fethard, Butlers Centra Dundrum and Ryans Centra Newport.
Centra’s Pink Walks touched every part of the country with almost 200 Centra stores nationwide hosting their own local walk and are on target to raise a staggering of €225,000 for the charity. Over ten thousand participants collectively walked an amazing 50,000 kilometres through villages and cities around Ireland to help drive awareness of breast cancer and raise badly needed funds.
All of the funds raised will go directly to the Irish Cancer Society, which helps provide information, advice and support services for women with breast cancer in Ireland. This is the fourth year that Centra has supported the Irish Cancer Society’s Action Breast Cancer, with the campaign over the last three years raising over €1 million.
